Birthday Mani 2015

Perfect Pair essie Flowerista and Orly Bubbly BombshellAs of Sunday I am a year older. Woohoo! I had a lovely weekend with friends and family though the main even was earlier in the week when the boy and I went to see Matt Nathanson, The Fray and Train on the Picasso at the Wheel tour. We had the best time.

Anyhow. Orly Bubbly Bombshell always seems to make an appearance in my birthday manicures. This time I wanted just a touch of glitter (plus, I wanted my manicure to last so that means no glitter at the tips!).

I used essie Flowerista as my base color then simply added small, triangles of glitter to the base of the nails using tape. It was a simple manicure with just the right amount of flash. Just perfect.

  1. Happy Birthday! I like that glitter placement, I am going to have to try that myself.

    I am a June baby and had mine last week. For my birthday dinner over the weekend I’ve alternated Lippman Xanadu, Butter London Airy Fairy, and FUN Lacquer Blessing(H) and topped Airy Fairy with Zoya Monet and Cirque XX and Magic Hour. Lots of pretty blues and loads of sparkle!
